Did you know your scalp might have different needs? Here are some tips to determine what your scalp type is.
I’m sure you’ve never even stopped to think about what your scalp type is, but it might be game-changing for the quality of your hair. While you might have a very structured skincare routine for your face, you’ve probably never stopped to think about your scalp, guess what? It’s skin too, hence it has special needs.
There are two important factors when it comes to your scalp, the amount of oil produced by it and its pH level.
Here’s how to assess your scalp’s needs
1. Dry Scalp
Having a dry scalp can lead to irritation and itchiness. This makes it a bad environment for healthy hair to grow. If you frequently notice dandruff, white flecks or itchiness, you are very likely to have a dry scalp. Go for a moisturizing oil to hydrate your scalp once a week after washing it.
2. Oily scalp
Oily scalp creates a buildup that also hinders the natural process of hair growth. It makes your hair look wet and heavy, your hair strands will clump together and gets greasy. It is important to choose a shampoo and conditioner that balances the excess oil.
3. Combination scalp
Just as having mixed skin needs, your scalp might have greasy patches and some other very flaky. It is important to consult a professional to assess your needs.
